    Dealing with death - the right and wrong ways

    Losing a loved one is painful. How we handle that loss depends on each person, but are we grieving in a healthy way? What should we say and not say to someone who lost a loved one? What should we do if the pain of a loss is just as apparent today than when it occurred? Dr. Dee Stern, a Springfield Catholic grief therapist authored a new book to help people grieve healthier and better comfort those who lost loved ones. It's called "Comforting the bereaved through listening and positive responding, what are the bereaved trying to tell us?" Dr. Stern offers her advice on Dive Deep.

How to vote

This episode was well done. Good to hear the importance of forming one’s conscience before voting. It is far from black and white for Catholics going into the voting booth. Lot’s of gray area, as Fr. House said. A preeminent issue doesn’t exclude others.

Awesome Podcast

Andrew & Amber do a great job with this podcast. Frequent guests, Fr. Chris House, Fr. Michael Friedel, and Fr. Marty Smith add a great element. The interesting, real-world Catholic discussions are exactly what is needed in today’s world.
